We know what sedan drivers in Doylestown, Philadelphia, and New Britain want in their next vehicle. That's why we're excited to announce that two vehicles on the market right now go above and beyond to fit your needs.

With the 2018 Volkswagen Jetta and 2018 Ford Focus having so much to be excited about, how can you possibly choose between the two? That's what we at Fred Beans VW aim to help you do in the following comparison. Let's get started by seeing how these vehicles compare when it comes to performance!

Jetta vs Focus: Performance Specifications

The 2018 VW Jetta is standardly powered by a 1.4L turbocharged/intercooled TSI 4-cylinder engine, 5-speed manual transmission, and front-wheel drivetrain.

This trio puts out an impressive standard 184 lb-ft in torque. Power outputs like this provides benefits like a livelier acceleration and better efficiency. You'll enjoy an impressive EPA-estimated 40 highway/28 city MPG1.

With the 2018 Ford Focus, you'll have a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine leading the way. However, this engine only puts out 146 lb-ft of torque, resulting in a less efficient mileage of 38 highway/26 city MPG.

Jetta vs Focus: Passenger Comfort & Cargo Space

Whether you're making your daily commute to work or on a weekend trip with the family, you'll want to have more than enough space for both your passengers and your stuff.

With the 2018 Jetta, you won't have anything to worry about with its 15.7 cubic feet of cargo space, 94.1 cubic feet of total passenger space, and 38.1 spacious inches of rear seat legroom. Unfortunately, you won't have quite as much room in the 2018 Ford Focus.

In the 2018 Focus, you'll only have 13.2 cubic feet of cargo space as well as three less cubic feet of passenger space. Additionally, rear passengers will have just 33.2 inches of leg room.

Jetta vs Focus: Standard Technology Features

To go with its power, efficiency, and interior space capabilities, the VW Jetta offers an array of standard technology features for both convenience and entertainment. This sedan is standardly equipped with a 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system that works together with Bluetooth wireless audio streaming and a rear view camera system.

As for the Ford Focus, you'll miss out on a few things. You'll still have an infotainment system and rear view camera integration. This screen will only be 4.2 inches and won't have touchscreen accessibility. You'll also miss out on Bluetooth audio streaming because it isn't offered in any of the trim levels.

2018 VW Jetta vs 2018 Ford Focus: The Verdict

As you can see, there's plenty to be excited about in both the 2018 VW Jetta and the 2018 Ford Focus. However, we believe sedan drivers in Doylestown, Philadelphia, and New Britain will appreciate the Focus's extra power and efficiency, spacious interior, and assortment of standard advanced technology features.
